Sunset in Balboa Park

Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by John Scanlan

My girlfriend, Kim, and I had just spent the entire afternoon walking around Balboa Park and returned to our car when we looked to the west as the sun was setting and saw a scene that reminded us of the album cover for the Eagles' Hotel California.

Location: Balboa Park, San Diego, California, USA
